As we head into our last week before the 21|22 winter break…

IMG_0122Thank you again to Mrs. Gropp for running our Poinsettia Fundraiser again this year. It looks like we raised approximately $900 for individual student accounts so thank you all for supporting your child and music at Poppy!

As we head into the final week of school before winter break, a quick reminder that we have lots still going on in the band classes. All concert and jazz bands have their winter (audio-only) recording sessions next week for their holiday tunes:

  • Band 9: Beethoven’s Fifth Christmas
  • Band 10: Themes from the Nutcracker
  • Senior Wind Ensemble: The Twelve Days of Christmas
  • Junior Jazz Ensemble: Greensleves
  • Senior Jazz Ensemble: Christmas Time is Here

These recordings will be made available by the end of next week!

Concert Bands also have their solo and chamber music presentations in class next week:

  • Band 8 and 9 have solo performances in class on Monday and their Chamber Ensembles (Duets, Trios, Quartets, Quintets) and their Full Recording Session on Wednesday.
  • Band 10 have their Chamber Music and Full Recording Session on Tuesday and solo performances in class on Thursday
